• Pacman update error - file already exists.


    Hi guys, I’m getting a weird error in pacman, it’s flagging chromium as needing updates but when I try to run the updates I get a bunch output saying it can’t perform update as file already exists. I’ve included my logs and bash output for reference.

    My logs:

    0_1454605905913_pacman-errors-file-already-exists-logs-2016-04-02_12-04-48.tar
    **
    My bash output:**

    [[email protected] lapinot]# pacman -Su

  • Try pacman -Syyu --force. Only use force when needed like this.
